Forest Management

HVP sustainably manage our forests for environmental, social and economic values for the present and the future.

It starts with our people. Fundamentally, keeping them safe and striving towards our commitment to Zero Harm. We know we must build on this baseline measure, investing in their career paths and caring for them personally to generate continuous improvements in safety, environmental and investment performance. As a commercial business we must retain a commercial and customer focus, and provide attractive long term returns for our investors to maintain the balance that is at the core of our mission.

As foresters this means making every tree count through new technology and relentless innovation, maximising yields and the quality of our structural sawn timber and fibre board products, and for our pulp and paper customers. Its about being a good neighbour, respecting our people, stakeholders and the environment while delivering attractive long term returns for our investors. We need to take ownership of decisions, do things better tomorrow than we did today, and always do the right thing, even when no one is watching.

HVP Plantations recognise forestry is a long term sustainable business. We believe good management of the forest estate, including effective planning, implementation, monitoring and review of our activities, will enable us to safely and sustainably provide a range of forest products and values (environmental, social and economic) in perpetuity.

The HVP Forest Management Plan is updated annually and a copy for viewing and stakeholder suggestion and input is provided below.
